LCDL Metadata Schema

This is a detailed listing of all metadata fields required and/or recommended for the Lowcountry Digital Library.  This schema has been vetted against national standards and best practices and is compatible with the South Carolina Digital Library (SCDL) and the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) element sets. LCDL uses the MODS metadata schema for the description of all digital objects.  Our MODS fully crosswalks to Dublin Core and is OAI compliant.
